It was back to business for the Lady Spartan volleyball team Tuesday night. After Sparta dropped a five-set match to La Crosse Aquinas in its season opener and won just four of 10 matches at last week’s Great River Sprawl in Onalaska, head coach Dave Waraxa asked his team to adopt more of a...
Brookwood came up a win shy of sharing the Scenic Bluffs Conference volleyball crown a season ago, but a wealth of returning letter winners should put the Lady Falcons right back in the title race in 2017. Bangor, Cashton and Royall all posted 11-3 records last year to tie for the conference...
With just seven seniors on the roster – two who are just first-year players – the Brookwood High School football team enters its 2017 season with a lack of experience. But inexperience doesn’t always equate to struggles on the gridiron – especially if your players just happen to posses an ability...
Jenna Bean doesn’t really like to use the word “rebuild.” Bean and the Lady Eagle spikers are just a year removed from a stellar season that saw Cashton capture a share of the 2016 Scenic Bluffs Conference title and advance to the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Division 4 sectional...
Despite its 0-2 start in a pair of nonconference games this season, Cashton football coach Jered Hemmersbach likes what he sees from a young Eagle team that is willing to put in the effort to improve. Add to that the fact that five key players who missed time in the early season due to injury will...
In his 18 seasons as Bangor High School’s head football coach, Rick Muellenberg has put together a pretty impressive resume to say the least. In addition to posting a 131-54 overall record, Muellenberg’s teams have won seven Scenic Bluffs Conference championships (2008, ’09, ’10, ’12, ’14, ’15 and...
Bangor is coming off a stellar 2016 season on the volleyball court, and if its performance at a weekend tournament in Boscobel is any indication, the Lady Cardinals spikers are in for another wild ride. Bangor opened its 2017 campaign by posting six unanswered wins to capture the team title at the...
The Tomah Timberwolves will have the chance to start its season off at 2-0 Friday night, when they hit the road for a nonconference football game at Black River Falls Tigers. The Timberwolves came out on top 32-21 in last Friday’s season and home opener with Mauston, and Tomah head coach Brad...
The Sparta football team will face a tough opponent Friday night, when they travel to Westby to play the Norsemen, who beat four-time state runner-up Darlington 15-14 in last week’s season opener. “We know Westby,” offered Spartan head coach John Blaha. “They’ve got some great talent. They’re...
A workman-like effort from the offensive line lifted Sparta to a big nonconference win its football opener at Sparta Memorial Field Friday night. The Spartans jumped out to an early lead and held off a pesky Black River Falls team to score a 28-13 victory over the Tigers. The win was the second...
